About the Program

Enjoy one-of-a-kind art projects themed around Skirball exhibitions. Reinforcing the values of collaboration, community, and caring for the world around us, projects will ignite the imaginations of your family members, whether they are 2 or 102!

August 16–September 2: Puppets Like Us—Create a one-of-a-kind puppet inspired by unique characters found in The Jim Henson Exhibition: Imagination Unlimited.

September 1–29: Harvest Baskets—Honoring the Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Sukkot, weave repurposed baskets to celebrate new beginnings and the start of the harvest season.

October 6–28: Family Tapestries—In recognition of California Archaeology Month, design your very own tapestry that shares your family’s traditions and is inspired by ancient crafts.


“The Skirball [Cultural] Center’s exhibitions are guaranteed to get your creative juices flowing, so put the mojo to good use in the museum’s Family Art Studio. The bright, colorful space is marketed to kiddos, what with the low tables and a toddler-friendly play nook outfitted with books, toys, and beanbag chairs. Staff and volunteers offer as much or as little hand-holding as your future Picasso wants.”—“The Best Things to Do in LA in 2018,” Los Angeles magazine
